This Week's Nostalgia (5/21-5/27)

by Trista Hou (Bingshu Hou)

Whether you prefer the White Stripes or maybe just his art, Jack White's recent solo album Blunderbuss (stream it below) has received critical acclaim amongst the most prestigious of music sites. Though it is White's solo debut, the influence of his former bands White Stripes, Dead Weather and Raconteurs can still be found. Wanna reminiscence as well as explore his new material? Find him on Monday and Tuesday at Roseland Ballroom, especially for those who couldn't squeeze yourself into the packed show last month in Webster Hall.

Garbage. Haven't heard from this band in... seven years! Just a week ago, their latest album Not Your Kind of People had its worldwide release. The Guardian gave the album four out of a possible five stars, calling it "a beautiful, otherworldly cross between a John Barry Bond theme and a David Bowie outsider anthem." Tuesday at Webster Hall, get ready for a feast of seeing and hearing.
